Dear Fellow Rotarians,

I have the pleasure of inviting you to a fabulous talk at my Rotary Club of Hong Kong meeting on the 12th August 2014 at the Hong Kong Bankers Club (43/F, Gloucester Tower, The Landmark, Central) , commencing 12h45.  The speaker is our very own wonderful Douglas Young, Sunday Noodle Eater, Classic Car aficionado, designer, architect and DBS boy (’82).  as you can read from his Topic and Bio below, you can expect a thoroughly educational/entertaining presentation and be prepared to fire some other soul-searching questions at him.

PLEASE come and show him some support by attending our lunch meeting – Rotarians will of course qualify for make-up; non-Rotarians will have a great time too.

‘Cultural Evolution Hong Kong Style’ by Douglas Young, Founder of G.O.D (住好啲)

Founded in 1996, GOD is one of very few brands from Hong Kong that is proud to show its origins. It’s founder Douglas Young, a native Hong Konger, was trained as an architect in the UK and returned in the 1990’s to a place that he feels, is losing it’s unique character and cultural identity. GOD is his personal quest to rekindle that lost identity. It is also an exploration on how traditions can be saved and passed on to future generations.
